Castello di Fulignano was a memorable stay before the world changed. We were looking for a base to explore Tuscany off the beaten track and this was perfect. All credit to our wonderful host Serena who provided invaluable local knowledge and a personal perspective on contemporary Italy. PROs: Stunning views of the valley and the awe inspiring towers of San Gimignano beyond on a distant hill. Well equipped rooms. A fabulous pool. Classy restaurant La Grotto (dinner only) and a spectacular cellar. The property is located on an historic pilgrim trail and the walks are fascinating. Every path leads down of course, then up, then down. It’s very remote so watch out for shooters hunting wild boar that like to eat the ripening grapes in Autumn. CONs: You must have a car to get to the top of the hill and anywhere else. Remember, Italian drivers are lethal. You need to stock up on groceries. There is no cafe or bar, on site or nearby. Serena will direct you to the nearest PAM supermarket in Poggibonsi, a service town about 20 minutes away. The range of fresh produce is amazing and the deli staff are very understanding of visitors with limited Italian. We had both been to Tuscany before so we wanted to explore the smaller hill towns of this famous region. Unfortunately so did everyone else. Pre COVID 19 Italy was swarming with tourists, ourselves included, and everyone was in a car. Consequently parking was a major hassle. Most towns we visited Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, Greve In Chianti were parked out requiring backtracking on foot for a couple of kilometres or a shuttle bus. Perhaps now the pace has eased somewhat. Our recommendation is to book a week at Castello di Fulignano, stock the larder and relax by the pool.

Wonderful relaxing place to stay - we stayed 7 nights and could easily have stayed longer. Located on a hill with excellent views from our room over the Tuscan countryside and the beautiful town of San Gimignano. We had the tower room. The rooms are well set out and comfortable. As Castello de Fulignano is out of town you do need to have a car but it is the perfect base for exploring the region. Onsite restaurant is very good, if you don’t feel like cooking in your room. Comprehensive information available about what to see and do, in fact Serena emailed it all to us when we made our booking from Australia. Serena is an absolute gem, always helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Always has a big smile. We give the hotel 5 stars but we give the lovely Serena 6 stars. Another big plus is that there is a washing machine and dryer available. Tony and Jill Brisbane Australia

Our booking was cancelled only four days prior to arrival! We booked 8 nights at the hotel about 3 months ago. The hotel had the Tuscan charm we had been looking for and it was suitable for a family (our children are 5 and 7 years). The hotel's announcement came as a very unpleasant surprise since 95% of hotels in the area were already booked in July 2019. Booking.com suggested, in their opinion, a "similar" hotel. If this was not suitable they could help us find other options, or we could do our own search on their website. Further they stated that the cancellation fee for Castello di Fulignano (who had cancelled our booking) will be removed first after a new booking has been made via Booking.com... Booking.com thus informs us that we have to pay a cancellation fee for our booking of Castello di Fulignano if we do not book a new accommodation through them... Unprofessional. We never received any explanation or apology from either Castello di Fulignano or from Booking.com - they did not respond to our emails.

We have visited Tuscany many times and, for this trip, planned to spend a week in and around san Gimignano. Since the address was San Gimignano we booked a week at this lovely resort. When we got there we found it was not too close to the village but we were far from disappointed. Our plans consisted of day trips to San G and the surrounding area but we could have easily spent the whole week relaxing at the Castello. The building is a restored 10th century building finished to a very high standard, right down to the custom made dishes, lamps. even a ceramic colander, all bearing the logo of the hotel. Our apartment was on the top floor ( not so good for us, 39 steps and we are 79 years old) but, after a week of climbing stairs we were in much better shape than when we arrived. Next time we'll ask for a ground floor apartment. The prize, though, was that when we were shown the apartment by Serena, the delightful resident manager, the last thing she showed was our own private tower. Great place for wine and cheese at days end, looking out over the Tuscan landscape. There are all the amenities, a lovely swimming pool, a guest laundry and, best of all at the end of a long day, a very nice on site restaurant. Next time we will plan to spend more days at the hotel, just soaking up the Tuscan ambiance.

Room Tip: stairs are an issue for you don't get one of the top floor apartments. The trade off is that...

We stayed in one of the lovely apartments, with beautiful sights and warm, comfortable wooden furniture. There was beauty everywhere, inside and of course outside with glorious views of green hills surrounding the property and the picturesque San Gimignano in the background. We had a fantastic time, enhanced by the efficient organisation provided by Serena, a most welcoming hostess. The meal and the service at the restaurant were great! I will never forget the little kitchen window opening onto the idyllic view of the Castello and surroundings and the tiny coffee cups greeting me every morning! What a treat!
